Drea de Matteo Wants Another Baby – Soon!

09/28/2009 at 02:00 PM ET

Almost every mom — at some point — believes her baby is brilliant and Drea de Matteo is certainly no exception. Calling 22-month-old Alabama Gypsyrose her “idol,” Drea tells USA Today says that baby girl is “wild” and “amazing,” and one to watch as she gets older!

“People think I’m crazy, but I really do believe I might have made the most important human being alive,” the 37-year-old actress jokes. “Her personality is unbelievable, and she’s so smart.” So impressed is Drea, she’s ready to do it again!

“I have to make another baby fast. I have to make another one in like two months. I just need to have a baby a year. I’m old, so I need to work fast.”

First things first, however, and next up for Drea is a turn on Desperate Housewives. The role has her in somewhat familiar territory — playing a “brassy Italian chick,” as she did for five seasons on The Sopranos — but those who are looking for a reprisal of her performance on the legendary HBO series will be disappointed.

“This character sounds like Adriana but she’s nothing like her in looks,” Drea notes. “I have a baby now, so they had better not put me in the sexy clothes!”

As she settles into her new digs Drea says she’s been enjoying lots of on-set visits from Alabama, who is “back and forth and crazy and coloring all over the place.”

“This week, I’m bringing her here because I feel like I haven’t had a chance to see her. This is a perfect job. I work maybe three days a week. I’m really lazy.”

Alabama is Drea’s daughter with fiancé Shooter Jennings.

Wow. Good luck to her. One of my girlfriends is a year younger and she tried for almost a year to get pregnant with the child she is carrying now and for 10 months with her firstborn. She got so frustrated as so many of our co-workers (myself included) who were getting pregnant right away (it took 3 months for me) or were finding themselves pregnant in an unplanned pregnancy and she was struggling so much. After 35 it just keeps getting harder, so I hope she gets the second child she longs for so much.

I hope she does have more babies 🙂 Alabama is adorable. I also hope she comes back for another season of Sons of Anarchy, I love that show and she was great on it.

My brother thinks she is one hot Italian mama. Good for her, her daughter will always have someone to play with.

Alabama is a little Jessi Colter to me, so gorgeous.
I loved Drea on The Sopranos and even on Joey so I’m really looking forward to see her in DH when it airs here in the UK.

Okay, this is probably a silly question, but….Is Drea’s fiance’s first name actually Shooter?
